WE SHALL FIGHT UNTIL BUSHENYI GETS DISTRICT SERVICE COMMISSION-UMAR MUHANGUZI
By Wilber Muhwezi Kasibante
The interim chairmanof Make Bushenyi Great Again Pressure Group;Hajj.Umar Muhanguzi haz vowed that him and Bushenyi residents will not sleep until the district gets a service commission that will help people get jobs and crucial services.
Muhanguzi said this Saturday evening July1, 2017 at Ankole Resort Hotel in Bushenyi town in exclusive interview with the www.mknewslink.com managing editor.
Make Bushenyi Great Again Pressure Group has been born out of a conflict between the district chairman Jafali Basajjabalaba and the local residents over failure by the chairman to sign appointment letters for the district service commission members who were approved in May 2016.
On the last week’s incident when the unknown people locked the district administration block, said the pressure group did not sanction it but they have no problem with it because Jafali and hisand staff should not work daily when other people lie idle with their qualifications.
“Those who locked the district offices were right because Jafali and his staff should not work daily and earn while other qualified people are starving” he said.
He said the pressure group will call stake holders meeting soon to discuss matters concerning Bushenyi district and how it should be governed because they are tired of decisions taken by only Basajjabalaba instead of all Banyabushenyi.
On the petition they sent to President Museveni on 15th June 2017, Muhanguzi says the president directed officials of ministry of public service to handle the matter. He said after the stakeholders meeting, they will meet president Museveni and discuss the matters concerning service commission and Hasan Basajjabalaba who is personalizing the district.
Muhanguzi criticized the district MPs for supporting Basajjabalaba yet they know that he is in wrong and the district service commission is highly needed.
He said they fear to oppose Hasan Basajjabalaba because they need his political favour in 2021.
Muhanguzi said they will not allow Bushenyi district to hire Mbarara service commission when it has it’s own commission.
He added that the pressure group shall organize the locals in the district and deny Jafali Basajjabalaba a platform to address the public in he will be barred from public functions until the district service commission commences work.
